As disconnected healthcare systems continue to burden providers, medical experts are turning to an enterprise approach to standardize operational workflows. Practices are now adopting interoperable EMR software such as DermEngine with the goal of optimizing communication for higher quality care.
Total body photography has become the preferred methodology for large scale study of potentially serious skin diseases such as melanoma. Despite current technical and operative challenges, this technique is labelled as the future for effective dermatology practices in the fight against skin cancer.
The advent of cloud-based dermatology software has allowed for the implementation of streamlined data collection, storage and analysis. Stakeholders in the healthcare system can benefit from real-time sharing of updated information that drives improved diagnosis.
Skin cancer early detection constitutes the biggest challenge of dermatology practices. The application of teledermatology and total body photography has brought great improvements in detecting the disease at early stages with higher survival rates and important saving in the public health systems.
Total Body Photography (or full-body imaging) is useful for monitoring patients with a greater risk of developing skin cancer. However, with this method requires many imaging sessions in a clinic setting. How are dermatologists addressing this challenge while ensuring patients receive quality care?
Artificial intelligence is revolutionizing the concept of learning through the use of powerful algorithms capable of outperform human experts in a variety of disciplines. However, such success is reliant on the relatively unknown tasks of “humans in the loop” for data labelling.
Dermatology EMR systems are a crucial tool for data management in modern practices. Although patient data can be efficiently collected, stored and shared, the use of remote connectivity in cloud-based software is the key to effective patient-doctor communication.
